Add IDs to div.widgets-holder-wrap in widget admin screen to allow custom layout

I've been fiddling around with the layout of wp-admin/widgets.php, using a stylesheet full of overrides enqueued to that page in my theme functions file, to see if I can produce a layout that better matches the theme and makes more sense to my users. (None of them understand the stacked-sidebar model.)
I've discovered that I can get pretty far, until it comes to creating two columns of sidebars. I can move the divs with the IDs matching those I registered, but the div.sidebar-name doesn't come with it. Since their wrapper, div.widgets-holder-wrap, doesn't have an ID, I can't easily rearrange the screen while the two parts as a group.
TL;DR: If you could add IDs to the wrappers within div#widgets-right, it'd be possible for adventurous theme developers to rearrange the sidebars.
See attached patch, and sample functions.php and admin-widget-overrides.css.
